A celebrated theatrical experience with EMMY award winner Yannis Simonides. March 9, at 20:00 at the Pierce Theater – The American College of Greece
Take a seat in the court of ancient Athens as Socrates goes on trial for his life. Hear the philosopher face his accusers with his trademark wit, cutting logic, and the courage of his ideals. Consider his arguments on virtue, justice, politics, corruption, civic duty, love of life and hope in death, and draw your own judgment. Enjoy the post-performance opportunity to discuss with the actor the ramifications of your verdict, led by acclaimed actor Yannis Simonides.
Think. Question. Change.
Socrates Now is an 80-minute solo performance that captures the essence of Socratic ethics in an accessible and engaging manner. Witness history's most famous defence as Socrates goes on trial for his life. The international hit theatrical rendition of Plato's "Apology" returns for the 4th consecutive year to the beautiful courtyard of the Athens University Museum, beneath the Acropolis, a few steps from where the philosopher was sentenced to death 2400 ago.
